DTA

Families receiving TAFDC in need of child care to accept or maintain employment, or to participate in an ESP or other approved employment related activity with an approved Employment Development Plan (EDP) are eligible for no fee child care through the Employment Services Program (ESP). 
 
The Online Guide has been updated to reflect changes to child care policies and procedures within the TAFDC program.
 
Child care services procedures implemented October 1, 2018 remain in effect including; 

  • authorization of child care for 12 months, with the exception of DTA’s Employment Planning period, which is authorized for 12 weeks,  
  • use of the fillable PDF Child Care Referral notice.  
  • continued eligibility under a DTA authorization until it expires, even if the TAFDC case closes.
